Menstrual Cycle Day 28

25 Comments


What is happening internally?

The corpus luteum continues to release high amounts of progesterone to maintain the uterine lining until the placenta takes over. The zygote (fertilized egg) is increasing in size and growing larger every day. The amounts of hCG are increasing, and are high enough to result in a positive pregnancy test. If conception did not occur, the amount of progesterone being released begins to drop due to the corpus luteum dying. The lining may begin to slough off.

Outward symptoms:

Basal body temperatures remain high above the coverline and may even steadily rise higher. Cervix may be low, firm and closed, or slightly raised and softer. Cervical fluid is dry or it may become creamy. You may experience bloating or water retention. You may experience a headache. You may have to urinate frequently and may or may not experience food cravings/aversions and fatigue. If conception did not occur your basal body temperature may be dropping down due to the corpus luteum dying. Cervical fluid may be creamy to watery and tan in color. You may have water retention, headache, moodiness, spotting and cramps. You may have bleeding start making this day 1 of a new cycle.

I am 21 years old. i have a 28 day cycle and i had my period on the 8th of november and it lasted 4 days. i had sex with my boyfriend on the 15th of november. then i cheated with my ex on the 21st of november, and i conceived on november 22. who would be my baby's father?

Definitely... is your ex's baby.

With a typical 28 day cycle, you are most likely to ovulate on day 14 or 15 of your cycle with nov 8th being cycle day 1. based on the calendar the likely date of conception would have been nov 22. sperm can live for only 2-5 days in ideal conditions meaning the person you cheated with would likely be the father.
